What is the Women, Infants and Children Program?

WIC is a free, supplemental nutrition program that is designed to help pregnant women, infants and children in families with limited incomes get the best start in life. WIC provides access to healthy food, health and nutrition education, referrals to other resources and breastfeeding support. The WIC program serves:

  • Pregnant women
  • Breastfeeding women with a baby less than 1 year old
  • Women who had a baby within the last 6 months
  • Infants and children under 5 years old

Who qualifies for WIC?

WIC serves a variety of families. Whether you are a married or a single parent, a grandparent, a foster parent, or a legal guardian, you may qualify for WIC services. Migrant workers are encouraged to apply.

You may be eligible for the WIC program if:

  • You are pregnant, breastfeeding, have or are caring for an infant or child under 5 years of age
  • You live in California
  • Your diet can be improved through WIC services
  • Your family’s household income falls within established limits. 

Income limits are dependent upon family size (a pregnant woman counts as two people) and are subject to change. Many working families and military families are eligible.
